What is your connection to the Internet?
DreamHost is currently connected to the Internet via multiple FastEthernet (100Mbps) and Gigabit Ethernet (1000Mbps) connections to different carriers to ensure continued network connectivity in case any one (or more) carrier(s) goes down. As of July, 2004, we have connections to Level3, Global Crossing, and Mzima Networks.

We also keep our bandwidth unsaturated. We have plenty of extra capacity, with the option to quickly add more bandwidth or additional carriers. We use Cisco switches and routers, as well as Extreme switches, and keep spare hardware on hand in the event of hardware failure.

We have provider independent IP space, allocated directly to us from ARIN (the American Registry for Internet Numbers).

Feel free to contact support or sales if you have additional questions about our network.
